Acknowledged. I will return to this after I do some experiments with `pkgsrc`. :)


Now my another vote.


Peropesis has `wget` for fetching/downloading files from internet.

Then quite a few Linux tools has shell one-liners to bootstrap their installation independently from package manager. But they use `curl` for that, Eg:

https://nixos.wiki/wiki/Nix_Installation_Guide#Stable_Nix
https://nim-lang.org/install_unix.html#installation-using-choosenim
https://github.com/docker/docker-install#usage
https://go.googlesource.com/tools/+/master/cmd/getgo/#usage
https://www.rust-lang.org/tools/install#rustup


`wget` probably can do most of what `curl` can. But the command line conversion would take some additional effort every such time. So I would like to have `curl` too.


I am not sure about the dependencies of `curl` though. I.e. are there something more required in comparison to dependencies that came with `wget`.


What's you opinion about including both tools?
